I just realized, or remembered after reading posts, that I have very rarely felt actual hunger, even when I haven’t had food. I worked at a rehab hospital for a few years, and used to bug the CNAs all day long, asking them check my blood pressure and blood sugar. Blood pressure was often so low they couldn’t find it, and blood sugar was almost ALWAYS so low that I regularly got the reaction of “I don’t see how you’re standing up, much less running around working”.
So, it’s possible for me that low blood sugar just doesn’t trigger my brain that it might be important to eat. That doesn’t stop me from going on munching sprees; I do get CRAVINGS, for salt, usually. Get that a LOT. I’ll munch potato chips all day and call it good on occasion, and just licking salt off my hand has been known to curb cravings for something to eat. Maybe ‘cravings’ are really hunger things for me, and they’re just not that strong. I definitely get cravings for dark green foods sometimes, or meat, or something specific probably missing from my diet.
Yeah, I may have broken/trained my poor brain.
